Following the success last year of our grant from the Australian Government to provide equipment and infrastructure to disability facilities in Moshi, CAPDA is excited to announce a series of similar projects for 2013.
Not only do we have two further grants under review, but we have also received a generous grant from Beach Energy, a South Australian-based energy company with business interest in Tanzania.
This grant will go towards an intensive programme of training workshops for more than 200 parents and carers of children with disabilities in the Moshi area, and will provide funding for further study for selected health professionals working with these children. It will also enable the development and manufacture of seating solutions, and commission six locally-made wheelchairs. We look forward to sharing more on this exciting development throughout the year!
Alongside these targeted projects, we will continue our grass-roots support for the disability community in Moshi.
